South Africa’s Diamond, on-screen character and media personality Minenhle “Minnie” Dlamini has surrendered from SABC’s prominent games appear, SoccerZone.
The on-screen character joined the show in 2013, co-facilitating nearby Thomas Mlambo.
“I have surrendered from SABC Sport to concentrate on my different business wanders. I have adored my time with the SABC Sport family and will miss them beyond a reasonable doubt. It torments me to understand that I won’t see my Thom (Thomas Mlambo) and Dr Mnandi each Monday as they have turned out to be family. I have to develop and investigate different open doors in diversion and business. I’m super amped up for 2017 and working hard to make it a win,” Minnie said in an announcement.
Some will grab tissues with pretend sadness, but please stop, we know you never liked having Minnie on the show!
On the very first day she was introduced, many weren’t pleased, complaining about her lack of knowledge for football and how someone more ‘qualified’ should have obtained the job instead.
Although the show is indeed a football show, Minnie was not handling anything on the technical side but was in fact in charge of a Lifestyle feature, where she managed audience engagement on social media.
She carried the position for four years and ultimately made a name for herself as a sports caster.
Minnie owned PSL awards as a host for four consecutive years.
She was introduced in the entertainment industry after winning the Live (now known as Urban Music Xperience) presenter search competition and has since became a household name.
Meanwhile, ZAlebz reports that Minnie’s publicist, Jarred Doyle is flooded with calls from people gunning for Minnie’s job, just a few hours after her resignation announcement.
Minnie is currently in Seychelles filming for the Tropika Island of Treasure Seychellesset to air in 2017.
“I will be back on screen for Tropika island of Treasure Seychelles in March 2017 on SABC3, be sure not to miss it.”
